Callum & Mel’s home rebuild
On Monday 10th August, my brother Callum and and his wife Melissa left their home to have some lunch. 20 minutes later they received a phone call from a neighbour to say their house was on fire, which we now know was started by an electrical fault in the kitchen. Despite best efforts of the fire brigade, Callum and Melissa tragically lost their beloved dog Luna, who was only 4 years old. It was an unusually hot day in Aberdeen, so doors and windows had been left open. Their kitchen and conservatory have been destroyed, and there is severe smoke damage in every room.
To add to the pain, they were not insured for this tragedy, as it had not renewed last year. They need to finance the restoration of the home on their own. It’s going to be a long road in restoring the house into a habitual state, and nothing but time will help them move forward from the loss of Luna. Callum and Melissa have hearts of gold, and I know they would be the first to help out family and friends if they found anyone else in this situation. I’ve set this page up to try and fund some support for getting their home into a liveable state again, and begin to move on from this horrible event.
